Degradable, biodegradable, compostable or bioplastics cannot be recycled. These plastics have been specifically manufactured to break down in the general waste stream. They are not recyclable as they start to degrade before they’re processed. They can be accepted in some home composting systems. These types of bags are currently not accepted in our green waste recycling.
